Austin Metro blueprints sold on eBay for £2,000

THE BLUEPRINTS FOR building the Austin Metro have been sold for just over £2,000!


Last week we reported that the plans for the Austin Metro, the long bridge plant it was built on and several Metro variants was being auctioned off on eBay.



Well the auction has now ended and the (reportedly) £275 million worth of research and development has been bought for the bargain price of just £2,050!



We’ll unlikely find out for some time, if at all, what the new owner has in store for these blueprints, so in the meantime we’ll just keep dreaming of a series of brand new Metro 6R4s hitting the streets.
